A day after accusing the BJP of raking up the Cauvery issue for electoral gains in Karnataka, DMK on Tuesday made a similar charge against the ruling Congress in the neighbouring state. Referring to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramiah’s insistence on building a dam across Cauvery river at Mekedatu, DMK President M Karunanidhi said both Congress and BJP were doing such things with an eye on the 2018 Assembly elections.

While the Mekedatu project was initially proposed to address the drinking water needs of Bengaluru, “Chief Minister Siddaramiah now says there are plans to produce 400 MW of power also,” he said in a statement. “Congress and BJP have already started fighting to win the elections and Congress’ present activities are only a part of that,” he added.
